Getting Started Notes:

These are some things to take note of before you get started:

PID of Products

Product Identification Number of the Products that are to be shown in the scoller (separated by ,). It is very important that there are not any spaces in the list of product ID's and that each one is separated by a ",".

Show the scroller Vertical or Horizontal

This option indicates whether to show the scroller Vertical or Horizontal.

Show Thubnail of Full Images

This option indicates whether to display Thumbnails or Full size images. If Thumbnails are chosen, no title will be shown.

Image Width

The Width of the images that will be displayed. Must match up with the Thumb or Full option above. NOTE: For Horizontal Scrollers: The width specified here, plus 5 pixels will be multiplied by the number of Visible items specified below. That number plus 80 pixels will be used to determine the width of the entire scroller. For example if image width is 150 and Visible is set to 4, the calculation would be 150 + 5 = 155. 155 x 4 = 620. 620 + 80 = 700. The entire scroller would be 700 pixels. For Vertical Scrollers: The width specified here, plus 40 pixels will be the height.

Image Height

The Height of the images that will be displayed. Must match up with the Thumb or Full option above. NOTE: For Vertical Scrollers: The height specified here + the Title Height (Full only) + 5 pixels will be multiplied by the number of Visible items specified below. That number plus 80 pixels will be used to determine the height of the entire scroller. For example if image height is 120, the Ttile height is 30, and Visible is set to 4, the calculation would be 150 + 5 = 155. 155 x 4 = 620. 620 + 80 = 700. The entire scroller would be 700 pixels tall. For Horizontal Scrollers: The height specified here, plus the Title Height (Full only), plus 40 pixels will be the height.

Title Height

The Height allowed for the product name to be displayed. Only used if the Full option is chosen above. This value should include the height of the category description if it is selected (see below).

Number of Products to scroll by

The Number of Products that scroll by the window at one time. If Visible is set to 4 and this is set to 3, then the product all the way to the right will move all the way to the left and remain in view each time the display is scrolled.

Number of Products in view during scrolling

The Number of Products that are visible in the scroll window at one time. This along with the image width and or height will determine the size of the scroller.

Number of seconds to wait before auto-scrolling

This is the number of seconds to wait before advancing the scroller. If this is set to zero (0), no auto scrolling will occur.

Scroll the items across the window Fast or Slow

This is how fast the items appear to scroll by the window. Try both and see which one better suits your needs.

This options controls how the carousel will act at the end of the included products

This option tells the Carousel what to do when the listed products have all been shown.

Instance number of this scroller

This is a number that you can use to allow multiple instances of a scroller on the same page. The valid values are 0 - 9. This allows up to 10 instances of the scroller on each page. If more than 10 per page are needed, we can guide you on how to increase this number.

Show Short Description Option

This is whether to show the short description under the title filed or not. This height needs to be included in the Title Height above.
